Reviews for Rhubarb Crisp
"Great recipe, so yummy! I used apples instead of strawberries. and made two batches and gave one to my neighbour"
"I made this yesterday. I made a big batch and used both apples and strawberries in it. I quite enjoyed it and the friends with whom I shared it told me it was really tasty. I may make it again next year."
"Super delicious. Definitely a keeper."
"Thank you, ladies, for all the help. Marvelous apple recipe."
"Yummy! I substituted raspberries for the strawberries and it was delicious."
"This is just awesome! I used apples with the rhubarb and regular oats. Followed the recipe as printed. I'm going to try blueberries and walnuts or pecans next time"
"Not too sweet, perfect. Next time I'll add walnuts in the topping!"
"This is the recipe my family has used since Quaker Oats started making oatmeal. Versatile and easy. Depending on the fruit you add, you can use cinnamon, dash of nutmeg, if rhubarb or apples are too tart, a dash of salt. I never melt the butter just use soften butter. You can always add some more oats or flour if too moist for topping. Sometimes I add white sugar with the brown sugar. Also I may put a few pats of butter inside with the fruit, before putting the topping on. Also, depending how the topping turns out, I may put a pat of butter or two broke up on top of the topping. You can just add or subtract on this recipe."
"Am I totally off base or am I reading this recipe wrong. When I followed the topping recipe, I did not get coarse crumbs. I am sure it was because I melted the butter, as the recipe states, so it was just a moist mix. I tried to drop it over the fruit in small batches, but don't know if that will wok. It is in the oven now. Next time I think I will use room temp butter, which makes way more sense."
"This was so easy to make, I made it with fresh rhubarb and fresh blueberries, topped with a little whip cream and it was delicious ! It was a real hint with my family!"
"Had given up on Rhubarb Crisp recipes. This one works! Made mine with rhubarb and strawberries."
"Easy to make and yummy. Used rhubarb and an apple. Served with ice cream and did not think was too sweet at all. Will make again!"
"Yummy recipe. This one is a keeper :)"
"Just made this recipe. It's yummy, but very, very sweet.. I substituted almond flour for the all-purpose flower. Next time, I think I'll add a little more cinnamon and reduce the amount of sugar."
"I thought this was excellent. I made the silly mistake of adding the brown sugar to the fruit as well as the white sugar, I misread when it said "add the sugar".. And it still tasted great, very quick and easy! I also didn't have strawberries, so used a mix of blueberries and raspberries frozen, and the recipe still turned out great!"
"Very good recipe. The only thing different that I did was to combine the dry topping ingredients in the food processor and pulse cool (not quite room temperature) butter into it. This made it easier to sprinkle the crumbly chunks over the top of the fruit. The first time I made this, I used melted butter like it called for. I thought the topping before baking was too squishy that way. I like the crumbles better. That being said, it tastes marvelous and the texture is perfect either way. I recommend greasing the pan for easier cleanup. A doubled recipe fits in a 9 x 13 pan. bake the doubled recipe about 10 minutes longer."
"Very Nice! I used apple and was surprised how nice it goes with rhubarb! Its a keeper!"
"Delicious and simple, my whole family loved it!"
"Simple and delicious. I cut the sugar down a tad."
"Hi Lotus - it's absolutely because of the corn syrup. They're two different creatures. Cornstarch is a thickener, meant to keep the juices from being too runny.Corn syrup is a sweetener, it's used in many recipes like caramel buns to produce that sweet, chewy, gooey topping.Try the recipe again using cornstarch or even a bit of flour instead and you'll have much better results."
"im just wondering why the outer layer and some parts turned out hard as a rock?? is it because I used corn syrup instead of cornstarch?"
"my roommate and I love it"
"I used blueberries, strawberries and one apple along with the rhubarb, and I had to double the recipe because I had so much rhubarb. Mine came out very watery. Not sure why, but I added more cornstarch - I need to see if that helps."
"Whole family loved it!"
"I loved this. I made with strawberries and rhubarb. It had just the right amount of topping. I can't wait to make it again."
"This was easy and delicious, plus I had all the ingredients already on hand, except the strawberries. I will make this again and again."
"This is a great recipe. I've tried others that had way more sugar and not near as good as this!"
"I love rhubarb and I was so excited to try this but mine turned out really dry on top and I need to try it again to see if I made a mistake"
"Made just like recipe said. Not only was this an amazing dessert, it made my house smell great. It was so easy and really delicious. Topped it with vanilla ice cream. My husband topped it with Cool Whip. Both were wonderful. Try this recipe."
"I followed this recipe to a tee and it turned out great. I made it with the strawberries. Not too tart and not too sweet. Just right:)"
"yes I made this and everyone loved it and wanted the recipe.my mother is 99 had 3ards"
"The only thing I did differently was made a double batch and added a 1/2 teaspoon of ground allspice to it. SMELLS and TASTES wonderful!!"
"I used apples,rhubarb and blueberries. Delicious!"
"Absolutely delicious!! My family loved it. Will definitely make this again and again ..."
"Absolutely delicious! I will replace my old crisp recipes with this one. The strawberries are wonderful in this. I doubled the recipe in a 9x13" pan. I had Cool Whip but ice cream would be wonderful also for serving over the warm crisp."
"Mmm Mmm Good!"
"I doubled the ingredients for the topping and it was much better."
"My family loves this! Great for Sunday brunch!"
"This was delicious! I did not use as much apple as called for. I will definitely make this again."
"Any berry works well with this recipe, too. Even peaches. My favorite combo is blueberry, cherry and rhubarb...sluurrrrp!!!"
"SIMPLY SUPERB CRISP!!!!!! WILL NEVER MAKE ANY OTHER RECIPE FOR ANY KIND OF FRUIT CRISP EXCEPT THIS ONE. NOT TOO SWEET AND JUST ALL BLENDED TOGETHER WELL. IF THERE WERE 10 STARS, IT WOULD BE RIGHT UP THERE AND CERTAINLY COMPANY QUALITY MENU ITEM. ENJOY"
"I found this recipe a couple weeks ago and have now made it twice. It is AWESOME! I chose to put in one apple and about eight large strawberries along with the rhubarb. The three together create a wonderful sweet and slightly tangy flavor. It is a great way to use rhubarb!"
"This is a recipe I plan to make every spring. I doubled the recipe and cooked it in a 9X9 clay Pampered Chef pan, although probably any 9x9 pan will do. I serve it warm with vanilla ice cream."
"My husband and 4 year old son made this last night and we ate it for breakfast this morning-oh it is sooooo good! They used fresh strawberries not the apple. We all loved it and if our CSA sends us more rhubarb we will likely make this again!!! They ate it with whipped cream-I put just a small amount of whole milk over mine. It was scrumptious!"
"The BEST rhubarb crisp I have ever tasted! I had to add ~ 1/4c extra flour to topping but everyone in my family devoured this dessert!"
"This desert is fantastic! I had to scold my husband for trying to take half of the pan in one helping! Great addition to any meal!"
"This is a truly simple, yet delicious treat. I made four double batches for our family gathering in June. I have 9 brothers and sisters, along with their families, and everyone absolutely begged for more."
